The trail starts at the centre of the health-resort – the point with the signs is located near the Orthodox Church. The trail leads away from Wysowa along a picturesque road to Blechnarka, where a historic wooden Orthodox Church is worth seeing. We are currently hiking around the territory inhabited by the Lemkos – it is proven not only by the Orthodox churches, but also by the stone, Orthodox crosses located along the road. From Blechnarka, the trail leads along an asphalt road, and after 1 km from the church, it is replaced by a dirt road. After the next 300 m the trail turns right, crosses a spring stream of Ropa and leads to Wysowska pass (610 m AMSL), and thus – to the Polish-Slovak border.
The trail leads from the centre of Wysowa–Zdrój, through Blechnarka to Wysowska pass, to the Polish-Slovak border.
